A Weekend in September

Twothirds of galveston's buildings were washed away at a cost that was never fully calculated. In direct, economical prose Weems recreates that fateful weekend as experienced by those who actually were there.  . More than 6, 000 people were killed. Nearly a century after its passing, the storm remains the standard against which the ferocity and destructiveness of all others are measured.

This book is based on numerous conversations and correspondence with these survivors as well as a careful examination of contemporary documents and news reports. John edward weems's account of the Galveston hurricane was written more than six decades ago, when many of the survivors were still living and available for interviews.

The hurricane that swept galveston Island early in September, 1900, occupies a unique place in the reckoning of events of the Texas Gulf coast. And in the collective memory of a region where depredations by wind and water are accepted as part of life, 1900, the weekend of September 8, is the ultimate example of the terror and violence a hurricane can bring.

The result is a narrative that develops a pace and force as irresistible as the hurricane that inspired it, and a work that is a model of historical reportage.
